Reflecting on ones own pride is a real bitch, isn't it?

The Mountain of Purgatory

:)

 

Many images, many reflections...

 

Pride of Talent, the avidity of an artist for pre-eminence.

"vanity vanity, all is vanity"?

"The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:"

Isaiah 40:6

Envy
 
Can you see visions of freedom on the terrace of Envy?
Is freedom really an illusion?
Do you enjoy seeing your enemies in pain?
 
All provisional identity be damned!
Genetic predispositions are just plain prejudicial.
These are always carried to annihilation including the human soul!

Freedom is an accomplishment we are involved in to expand and increase.
Watch for fake Prophets using envy as a lens to logically predict the future.

It's fruitful for them but divides us all into monolithic death.

Too Much Study is Not Always a Bad Thing 
 
“To spend too much time in studies is sloth, to use them too much for ornament is affectation, to make judgment wholly by their rules is the humor of a scholar”
 
--Francis Bacon
 
 
Sloth is not doing the things that you love. Acting on what you learn is the hard part!
 
:)

 

 

That's good! That brings us to the terrace of Sloth. 
 
Deflection by task from what you Love and failure to apply principal is Loving something without sufficient zeal.

This is a heavy thread. When one looks hard enough within the self one finds these vices in layered aspects! They connect together like circuits on a motherboard.

Where is human evolution headed?

Notes for Dante's Purgatorio

Dante manages to describe the whole human story. The universal issue is human destiny, beyond our existence on earth, and Dante explores it comprehensively through description of human behaviors in which that destiny is set back (Inferno), prepared (Purgatorio) and advanced (Paradiso). The survival of the human essence in the heavens is of course no quaint medieval objective; today it is pursued with greater urgency and more encouraging results than ever in the past. But Dante's relevance lies not only in his seeing our species' necessary goal but also in his recognition of many of the fundamental behavioral obstacles to achieving it.
